Protruding Ears Correction in London
Most of us are born with ears that sit flush against the side of the head. However, some patients have deformed ears or are born with ears that protrude outwards, away from the head. This can be a cosmetic concern for some, as protruding ears can be considered unattractive. Additionally, our plastic surgery patients with protruding ears complain about low self-confidence and may feel depressed about their appearance. At our London clinic protruding ears can be corrected during a surgical procedure called otoplasty. Otoplasty is a simple procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. During otoplasty at Eskulap skin clinic, the surgeon will make incisions in the skin behind the ear. Then, the surgeon will reshape the cartilage of the ear and place stitches to hold the ear in its new position. The incisions will be closed with surgical tape or stitches.
Otoplasty, mini face and neck lift and eyelid blepharoplasty at our Clinic are performed as an outpatient procedure, which means that the patient can go home the same day as the surgery. The recovery process is typically short and easy, and most patients can return to their normal activities within a week. The results of the procedures are permanent, and patients can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of their ears, eyelids and face. Additionally, patients can expect to see an improvement in their self-confidence and self-esteem.
